Beautiful High Performance Ride — I love the sound of this car's engine and its performance - just a small punch of the accelerator and you are miles ahead of the pack. I feel very safe in this car - I totalled a Mercedes 350 SLK a few years ago and walked away unscratched. Car brakes on a dime and has lots of safety features to keep you in your lane and focused on the road. Highly recommend.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, great handling, fun to drive or ride in.  Great for roadtrips

Cons: Gas mileage

Solid — Frankly, this car is what I expect when purchasing German engineering. This is my second C Class--I traded a 2004 240 4-matic purchased new...I anticipate my next new car purchase will be a C350 4-matic coupe...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent car in adverse weather.  

Cons: No complaints

Overall A Great Buy — It's a great car, what you can expect from a Mercedes-Benz, has great handling, if you get the premium Hardon/Kardon speakers, they're amazing. It;s a great car with many safety features, but if you're looking for something more sporty you should turn your head to BMW.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great feel, good brakes, nice engine, good handling

Cons: smaller than its competitors

Quick 4 Door Compact Sedan — Performance - Acc : 0-100km 6.0s Braking : Dont know the figures but it's ventilated & perforated disks. Sometimes the car slips when going around corners fast, but Built quality is great and the new 2012 looks are far better than the old one ..!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Built quality and technology used in the car ..

Cons: If the car was ALL Wheel Drive then the handling would have been much better..

This New For 2012 Is The Best C-class Yet And Much More Attractive Than The 3 Series, Infiniti G.... — I've had 10 Luxury cars of various makes and models in recent years and this by far is my favorite. It does everything well, but I'd say the steering/handling/refinement/efficiency/power and appearance make it the best car for me.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's appearance is by far best in class

Cons: Paying for it.

Better Than Any Bmw 3 Series. Auto Press Leaves It Out Of Comparison Testing. — I really loved to drive this car. I you hold the left paddle down, the car will downshift to the gear that gives you the best acceleration. I owned it 16 months and never saw another one on the road. 302hp, 1/2 slower than my 2005 M3 from 0 to 60 and if you kept it under 80 on thehighway, I aveaged 31mpg. The license plate (E46-SMG) wasn't the best plate for this car. I took it off my M3.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Loved the power, the looks and the sound system, which is by far the best I have ever had in a car and better than a some i had in my house (and I used to be audiophile)

Cons: Visibility, passenger seat is manual, trunk is almost useless even when you fold the back seats down.

2012 Mercedes C-350 Coupe — This is the first time Mercedes offers a Coupe in the C Class car. Previously you had to get a larger Series and pay a lot more money. Most dealers tend to stock the C-250 Coupe because of its lower cost. However, The 350 Coupe is well worth the extra money. It has many features standard that are options on the 250 Coupe model. The performance is very similar to the BMW 335-I Coupe. - its fast. While MB says that Premium fuel is required, we have found that it runs perfectly on any good quality of Regular fuel. The actual fuel mileage obtained is quite a bit better than the EPA sticker says. The first 5,000 miles had an overall average of 26.1 mpg. That included a lot of in town driving and 80 mph Interstate driving. The quality, ride and handling of this car are hard to beat. Test drive one and you too will be hooked.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Styling is great. The fit and finish and quality of all parts is excellent. The performance is superb with super smooth shifting through all 7 gears.  The interior and cargo spaces are very good. A person could actually sit in the back seat.

Cons: Mercedes does not offer Free Maintenance for 4 years. This is a standard option on BMW and Cadillac
